UV excimer lamps are efficient narrowband sources of UV radiation with applications in various domains. The issue of controlling the UV emission by means of the power supply associated with such lamps favors pulsed current-controlled generators. After having established the previous statements, we propose a dedicated power converter topology which implements the needed performances. The analysis of the degrees of freedom of this structure shows the capability of this pulsed supply to realize the control of both the pulses' current energy and of the mean power transferred to the lamp. Actual experimental realizations and measurement are presented and the feasibility and the performances of the proposed solutions are established.
